  1. Invision is a popular tool for visual designers and UX designers, but it is usually a pain to transfer the information over to Jira. With Invision for Jira that becomes less problematic since you can embed an inline prototype directly into a Jira issue that also include the inspect function that makes life easier for the developers.

    While this is very nice, it really is just a fancy way to link people to Invision because the links will take you to Invision and you get the same issue with making sure everyone have a login and understand the way Invision works. This does not solve the actual problem to bring in the information the designers need into the documentation, it just add a more convenient way to direct the users to Invision.

    Clicking the Preview button will open your prototype in InVision. If you click the Comment button, your prototype will open in a new tab or window in Comment Mode. Click the Inspect button to open your prototype in Inspect Mode in InVision. Clicking on the thumbnail preview will open the share link in a new browser tab so that it is possible for a user that does not have access to InVision to be able to view the prototype.

    So this leaves the designs in Invision, which is not a good place to keep designs once they are agreed upon since you need to ensure the designs are not continuously improved as that cause issues with requirements. This can be solved by transferring projects to a another, controlled Invision instance, but that is messy and prone to confusion and mistakes.

    What I would like to have is a way to embed this directly into Confluence where it can be version handled and controlled from a requirements perspective. The concept is amazing, but the solution right now is not enough for a good way to bring in design in a controlled way as a requirement into Jira unfortunately.

    Warframe, the free to play game that just keep putting all other games to shame when it comes to content creation and communicating with their community, announced a new city to play around in called Fortuna. The presentation comes with an amazing song that just hit me right in the heart!

    Cold: the air and water flowing.
    Hard: the land we call our home.
    Push to keep the dark from coming,
    Feel the weight of what we owe.

    This: the song of sons and daughters,
    Hide the heart of who we are. Making peace to build our future,
    Strong, united, working 'till we fall.

    Cold: the air and water flowing.
    Hard: the land we call our home.
    Push to keep the dark from coming,
    Feel the weight of what we owe.

    This: the song of sons and daughters,
    Hide the heart of who we are.
    Making peace to build our future,
    Strong, united, working 'till we fall.

    And we all lift, and we're all adrift together, together.
    Through the cold mist, 'till we're lifeless together, together.

  3. It's been a very long time since I went to the gym, but I am finally back again. I am weak and today I am in pain as my muscles complain about the abuse I put them through the last few days. It feels pretty good in other words.

    As usual when I hit the gym I go for contact over weight. People look a me a bit weird when I workout since I do not push for heavy weights since my body is so weak right now. Instead I focus on getting the movements right. Technique is more important and instead of stressing the muscles with heavy weights, which means I would risk injuries, I "bleed" them instead.

    Bleeding the muscles is just pumping them so full of blood that you rip the muscle fibers from within. This can be done with small weights so the risk is smaller than loading up on heavy weights. The pain is just as bad though, so that is good.

    The aim now is to push at least four days a week for the next 4 weeks to get into the routine gain. As I go back to work after the vacation I need to figure out how to keep the training going. As I work long days that are eleven to thirteen hours long with commuting that makes working out a bit difficult unless I want to hit the gym at the same time as everyone else. I do not like that kind of training though and I just get frustrated in crowded gyms.

    I also need to do something about my core. I have problems finding good ways to get focused core training and since that is my biggest training area due to a funnel chest and weak abs. I am considering if I should join a Tae Kwon Do club as I love the art of kicking and it's an amazing way to get great core training that I love to do. I also need the flexibility training as I am getting old and stiff.

    First I need to get my body used to the workout again so I do not have to walk around like a zombie due to the muscle pain 🙂
